How to Burn Steel
You win need: Candle, tongs or pliers, steel wool.
Oxygen is necessary if we wish to burn anything. There are many ways of proving this. One of the simplest is shown here.
You may not realize that steel can burn, although this is done every day in industry with the aid of an extremely hot flame obtained by mixing pure oxygen and acetylene. We will use a candle flame!
In order to burn steel we need as much oxygen as possible around it. We need the steel in line shreds so that the air can circulate freely around them.
The steel wool used in the kitchen is ideal for our purpose.
Take a tuft of steel wool and fluff it out. Now hold the wool with the tongs or pliers and lower it to the candle flame, (Be sure the burning embers will fall onto a metal surface (preferably into the candle tray). You will be surprised to see your experiment turn into a miniature fireworks display.
